    Okay Guys. Here's a challenge. :)
    Can we design a bath bomb press, similar to, but not necessarily the same, as the one shown here, but out of Openbuilds parts? :rolleyes: I should be able to get some parts 3d Printed where needed.



    I think we can, and for a lot less than the sample supplied, which costs $550. :banghead:
    I will have a go at designing one in Sketchup, but would be greatful for any ideas or suggestions in this area.:thumbsup:


    Cheers

    But seriously, what you're seeking is not all that difficult. You will probably want to dumb-down the screw a bit. I would probably go with a standard M8 thread. And keep the side supports in tight. This will take bending of the top and bottom rails out of the equation.

    Here would be my suggestion. Not fully detailed but you get the idea.

    Provide a threaded nut just inside the top plate of the double'd C-Beam ram.

    Wow! Just googled "bath bomb." I never knew such an industry existed. When I read the words "Bath Bomb" in the title, I was thinking somewhere along the lines of a lit M80 firecracker being flushed down the toilet. I was curious as to where the "Press" part of the title came in.

    Just don't say, "Bath Bomb", and "Unicorn" in the same breath, or you can't help making money!!! :):):thumbsup:
